New & Notable

Summer is here and we have a lot going on at the library for children of all ages. Check out our calendar and be sure to stop by.

We recently unveiled our millennials collection. These books are displayed on shelves near the circulation desk. The millennials collection focuses on titles of interest to adults who range in age from roughly 18 to 30.

If you are a member of this demographic we would love to hear what books interest you. To this end, we have set up an online suggestion form that you can use to recommend purchases.

We are pleased to announce that we now offer Transparent Language. Transparent language is used by libraries, schools, and the US military and government.

Transparent Language features a scientifically-proven methodology, the widest variety of high-quality learning material, and seamless integration of real-life language use by native speakers - all packaged together in an easy-to-use interface - And with 95+ languages to choose from, there is something for every language learner.


Wireless Printing from Laptops

We now offer patrons the ability to print in-house from a laptop. Instructions can be found here.

Summer Program


The TumbleBook Library is a collection of interactive animated talking storybooks for children. Children can read the text themselves or have the stories read to them. Stories are available in English, Spanish, French and Chinese. This is an excellent learning experience for young children.


eBook Class. If you have an eBook reader, this class is for you. Come and learn how you can download eBooks from our Overdrive service in this hands-on demonstration. Overdrive is funded cooperatively by New Hampshire libraries and allows our patrons to download popular titles at no cost to them. Be sure to bring your eReader and its USB cable. You can view a list of compatible devices here.

Registration is required for these classes. To register, fill out this online registration form or call the Reference desk at 898-7064.
